Snow realizes something is wrong with Charming. She finds Killian, who has the bean. She tells him to get back to Emma. She finds Charming, and wakes him up with a kiss. At the castle, Killian brings the bean to Regina, but she doesn't have enough magic to make it work. She teams up with her other half, and it's still not strong enough.

As the Enchanted Forest collapses, the Evil Queen tries to hold it together so the others can escape. Emma returns to Storybrooke. She doesn't quite believe, but she wants to.
